'Bails' told wiganwarriors.com:
"I haven't played in the back row for about four years now but it'll be good to get back into it.
"Nobby said there was a chance of playing in the back row but I don't care where they play me; I'd play darts in Saudi Arabia if I have to!"
The amiable Aussie is also ready to step up and take some more responsibility following the loss of fellow countryman Bryan Fletcher.
"Fletcher will be a big loss and Shane Millard on and off pitch was an utter professional. Myself, I have to take a bit more of as leadership role and George Carmont, Andy Coley and Richie Mathers will step into that role as well."
